Remarks. Cameron did not specify the exact number of specimens he examined for Thamiaraea aucklandica  , and

there were three specimens each in the BMNH and NZACAbout NZAC: though the labels did not match among the BMNH (one

set in Brookes’ hand, the other in Cameron’s hand) indicating the specimens were originally carded together. In

order to stabilize this name a lectotype ( NZACAbout NZAC) and 5 paralectotypes ( BMNH, NZACAbout NZAC) are here designated from
